Barbara Eden's quotes

  • I played the Marilyn Monroe role of "Loco" in How to Marry a Millionaire (1957), though I didn't consider myself as that kind of actress, I approached the role more as a character.
  • Every New Year's I resolve to have a better year than I had before.
  • If gentlemen prefer blondes then I'm a blonde that prefers gentlemen.
  • Out of all the actors I have worked with, I love working with Larry Hagman the most. We were very close and it was just a wonderful time.
  • I've never stopped working. If you're active, you can appreciate what you did in the past, you don't feel like it's gone.
  • Work makes me feel productive, as though I'm contributing something. I like being productive and feeling productive.
  • On Jeannie: She's very easy to live with. Actually I think I'm more restricted by her now than when she was on the air, or 20 years after. I was just so busy.
  • [on her son's addiction to drugs, drug rehabilitation, and his death from heroin overdose] He won a lot of battles, but he lost his personal war.
  • [The advice she's given towards parents after her son died from a heroin overdose] I'm telling them, 'talk to someone who has been through this, and seek help for your child right away'. If you treat this disease early, you can stop it.
  • [on Jeannie's pink outfit and how the NBC executives forbid her navel from being exposed] They became very strict about the navel...very strict about the pantaloons. They had to be very shadowed so you couldn't see my legs.
